Bunheads offers a range of progressive classes for all levels of experience. Students are asked to commit to a block of 5 classes to encourage continuity in learning. In each new block you will learn a "set class" with your instructor, then repeat the class for the block so you can develop your understanding, artistry and technique of the work.
ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS BALLET
Learn the fundamental basics of Classical Dance. A truly very beginner class designed for novice dancers or students who have not danced for many years. This series focusses on the importance of posture, muscle development, flexibility and grace of movement.
PROGRESSIVE BEGINNERS BALLET
Students who have taken our "Absolute Beginners" series or dancers with previous ballet training will enjoy the continuation of beginner level ballet into the intermediate level. Students will progress at a comfortable pace while increasing strength, flexibility and learning more complex steps and combinations of movement.
Students must have at least two years of training to join this class. This class focuses on improving classical technique while challenging students with expressive combinations.

BEGINNER + INTERMEDIATE VARIATION
In this 8 week course we will learn, perfect and perform a Classical Variation. This is an excellent opportunity for enthusiasts to develop confidence, style and artistry as well as developing knowledge of various repertoire. The variation choice will change each block and we explore work from a number of different ballets in varying styles.
A JOURNEY TO POINTE
Dream of dancing on pointe? This 8 week course is designed to get you confidently working in pointe shoes. We believe that pointe work is possible at any age, as long as you have no previous injuries. We will guide you through purchasing your pointe shoes to eventually dancing in the centre. We also suggest to dancers that this course may be taken "pre pointe". Therefore, you complete the course in canvas ballet flats prior to purchasing pointe shoes so you have a good understanding of the work.
